About TNN


Welcome to The Natural Nutritionist, it’s so great to have you here.

With a passion for spreading a positive message about real food and the incredible affect it has on health, fertility and performance, Steph launched The Natural Nutritionist in 2011 and is on a mission to inspire others to make health a priority in their lives. 

All of our recipes contain minimal ingredients, and if we can make them, so can you! We don’t have any formal kitchen qualifications, just a love of quality and delicious food. We truly believe that if you make your health a priority, you will find the time to prepare healthy food for yourself and your loved ones.



Meet Steph


Hi there, I’m Steph. I’m a mother, Nutritionist, yogi and founder of The Natural Nutritionist, now living in Launceston, Tasmania with my husband Ian and our gorgeous daughters, Grace and Rose. And I’m on a mission to inspire others to make health a priority in their lives.

I have been practising as a Nutritionist since 2011 and have seen thousands of lives changed around the globe, from adopting this way of life. We only need to look around our own neighbourhood to realise that chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer are reaching epidemic proportions, and to the science that proves how much our modern-day dietary guidelines are to blame. I am honoured to have you join us here, to not only present you with the research but teach you the healing power of real food.

Whether you are looking to further your clinical knowledge and/or wanting to deepen your own health journey, remember this: real food comes out of the ground, off a tree, or from an animal.

A little more about me:

  • I have an undergraduate degree in Sport and Exercise Science and a post graduate degree in Human Nutrition.
  • I’m a member of the Complementary Medicine Association (CMA).
  • I am most passionate about preconception, pregnancy and postpartum nutrition and believe that by building healthy mothers, microbiomes and metabolisms, not only will we thrive, but so too will the next generation, our children.
  • Along with running The Natural Nutritionist, I host the podcast, Health, Happiness & Human Kind, and am a passionate mentor to many newly graduated Nutritionists and Integrative Nutrition Health Coaches. You can learn more here.
  • I have been gluten free for over decade now, and literally because it makes me happy. I eat refined sugar once or twice a year and certainly don’t feel like I’m missing a thing. 

Meet thea


Hi! I’m Thea – a wife, mother and tertiary qualified nutritionist living on the Sunshine Coast with my beautiful son Darcy and husband Sam. I believe I was put on this earth to inspire and educate people on how to make real food choices that positively impact their overall health and empower them to become the best version of themselves.

As a mother, I understand the importance of fuelling your body with what it needs on a daily basis to not only survive but thrive and achieve your goals. Throughout my early 20’s I had my own host of health issues, from under-eating and having missing menstrual cycles to obsessively counting calories and unnecessarily restricting food groups. Since then, I’ve been on my own journey of learning more about nutrition and how to properly fuel my own body for success and helping others to do the same.

My favourite foods are avocado, dark chocolate, roasted sweet potato with sea salt and an almond latte, but you’ll still see me enjoying a scoop or two of coconut gelato when out with friends or a lovingly homemade gluten free chocolate cake. Life is about BALANCE. 

I’m passionate about coaching women to be at their best by refining their daily nutrition and implementing gut, hormone and lifestyle strategies.

I specialise in working with women who require specific sports nutrition strategies to optimise their training, however, my approach is also suitable for individuals starting out on their real food journey. I’m passionate about helping women get to the root cause of their fatigue, low energy or gut issues. By using real food, general pathology and comprehensive functional testing (including gut and hormone testing) and a personalised supplementation plan, we work together to create sustainable and empowering lifestyle changes.



Hi! I’m Bianca.

Most days you’ll find me rocking around with my two beautiful children, Breya and Harlan. Family is the most important piece of my puzzle, but I’m just as passionate about delicious, nutritious food, living an inspired life, and helping other women feel supported.

I worked as a senior health coach at Australia’s best independent fitness centre for over 6 years. I have a background in personal training and health coaching of over 10 years and I’m also currently completing my Post Grad in Human Nutrition.

Since becoming a mama in 2018, I have realised how much more attention and support this amazing
gift and journey needs. If you are a mama or mama to be feeling overwhelmed, a little daunted or want to elevate your pregnancy birth and beyond journey to the next level, rest assured you are in great hands with me.

I’ll provide nutrition and lifestyle support from pre conception all the way through to postpartum and even introducing solids for little ones. Your success is of utmost importance to me, and helping you to build the perfect care tribe so you can thrive in your motherhood journey is a pivotal part of what I offer.

Yes, motherhood can be challenging. That’s part of what makes it so rewarding. But trust me, putting the right strategies in place early, will be the best gift you can give yourself and your new little person.
